Dig into San Diego’s Amazing New Food Hall

    Little Italy just got a delicious upgrade

San Diego’s Little Italy has been on the up-and-up for the past few years, constantly adding cool new eateries, bars, and breweries that have made the charming pedestrian-friendly area a destination for foodies.

Today, the bayside ‘hood is welcoming the newest addition to its culinary roundup, right off of the new 11,000 square-foot Piazza della Famiglia. Little Italy Food Hall, a collective of six food stations offering delectable fare in varying forms, won’t just rely on Italian cooking (though, yes, there will be pizza).

Surrounding the central bar, which will serve up local beer, wine, and craft cocktails inspired by the varying cuisines, six food stations offer bites inspired by cuisines around the globe There’s Mein St. Asian Kitchen, where dumplings and boba reign supreme; Not Not Tacos, with surprising takes on the Mexican classic, including one meatball-filled version; Roast Meat & Sandwich Shop, for when a superfood salad or gourmet deli sandwich is all you need; Single Fin Kitchen, showcasing traditional Japanese donburi, a.k.a. rice bowls; and Wicked Main Lobster, serving the crustacean in chowder, roll, and mac ’n’ cheese forms. But, if Italian is what you’re coming for, don’t miss a wood-fired pizza from Ambrogio15’s Italian-imported oven.

Enjoy it all on the patio, where you might grab a drink from the imported Italian vending cart or catch a pop-up cooking demonstration in the outdoor kitchen. First up on the guest chef list for August is Sam the Cooking Guy, the TV host and culinary genius behind Not Not Tacos, who will showcase inventive summer appetizers.

The Food Hall will open its doors this afternoon at 3pm. Buon appetito!
